Sixteen hectares of designed landscape and vast areas of indigenous bushland feature more than 100 sculptures. McClelland receives funding through Creative Victoria and the Frankston City Council and from private philanthropy. Plans are now in place to add a fully funded contemporary architectural pavilion to the original building, which opened as Victoria’s first bespoke modernist public gallery in 1971. With a wide-ranging collection of 2,200 works of art, the exhibition program focuses on the development of modern sculpture, encompassing various forms of spatial practice, and encourages contemporary artists to develop and address challenging issues current in Australia and in a global context.
